Join Us for Deer Hunting
The Cedar Knoll Hunting Lodge in South Carolina provides its guests with access to 3,000 acres of intensively managed, prime low country habitat. Our whitetail deer herd has benefitted from a year-round supplemental feeding program that has been in place since 1985, and has produced the highest concentration of quality white-tailed deer in the nation as well as the highest sustained harvest on record in the white-tailed world.
In addition, the Cedar Knoll Hunting Lodge in South Carolina limits the number of deer hunters to not more than 10 hunters at one time. This helps us to ensure a quality experience and a high success rate.
Our Hunting Lodge in South Carolina insures the success of their clients by targeting only prime deer hunting times while avoiding historically slow periods, which affords appropriate "rest periods" between deer hunts in order to provide the highest opportunity for success. SC Deer Hunting periods include one week in August, September, and December, and six weeks spanning the rut from early October through mid-November. As a result of this strategy, Cedar Knoll customers experience a success rate of well over 100% on bucks with a 70% success rate on bucks 2.5 years or older, averaging approximately eight points and 15 inches in width.

Deer Hunting in South Carolina: The Hunt Day
You will be awakened one hour before daylight to prepare for deer hunting in South Carolina. You’ll be served a continental breakfast and driven to your stand right at daylight at approximately 6:00 AM. The morning hunt lasts for approximately three hours and is followed by a very nice brunch. Mid-day activities include fishing, billiards, television, conversation, or a nap. The afternoon hunt lasts for 3 hours and is followed by a bountiful dinner. Most hunting is done from elevated stands or tower blinds from heights of 12 to 15 feet. However, we also have ground blinds for those who cannot climb. All stands are strategically located throughout our property overlooking feeding stations and/or food plots at a range of 100 to 150 yards downwind.
